After a serial killer imitates the plots of his novels, successful mystery novelist Richard "Rick" Castle receives permission from the Mayor of New York City to tag along with an NYPD homicide investigation team for research purposes.
Complete tripe. It's a mystery how anyone falls for it.
John Edward pretends to talk to the dead relatives of audience members. He gives them easy clues and lets them fill in the gaps. He never says anything specific except (occasionally) by chance, but instead says things like 'I sense a father figure' and lets his victims give it meaning.
Since the audience is desperate for it to work they let him get away with virtually anything. I've seen him say '4th Street' when it was actually '5th Street' and get credited with a hit. He says 'the car was found close to home; I'm getting a 4 or 5 mile radius' and the victim says 'yes, ten miles'. That's a miss by one hundred per cent, but the victim swallows it, because she needs him to be real so badly.
Even if he were, I don't see why anyone would want to watch this. It's utterly boring. It's the same old, same old, John Edward with his annoying voice going from audience member to audience member saying the same either obvious or vague statements over and over again.
That people fall for this is a tragedy and a testament to the horrid state of education.
